Natural Haircare Maintenance and Hairstyling Tips for Biracial Kids

 

It took the birth of my beautiful biracial babies to motivate me to truly take the time necessary to understand and learn about how to properly care for our curls. After years of relaxing my hair, adding damaging extensions and having total dependence on hair stylist to manage my own hair, I took control.

When I saw Giana for the first time I was awestruck by her beauty. She was born with a full head of glorious curls.
It didn’t take long for her hair to become a constant subject of conversation in our lives.  I was not the only one to noticed and often when we’re out and about people would point out her tresses.

Not all the comments were encouraging.  “If you cut or trim her hair it will change the curl and never come back to its original texture” Regardless of their intentions I was warned of the potential to damage my little girl’s hair. I was told that nature would take its course and her texture would change.

When Misha was born she also had lots of hair but it looked different. It was a finer texture, less dense and it was straighter for the first year. The hair on the sides and back of her hair did fall out as an infant, unlike Giana who never had hair loss.

It was fear of damaging their hair that motivated me to read and research how to care for natural curly biracial hair. The more time I spent the more I became intrigued and soon I became empowered to start a natural hair journey of my own.
